Went up to the Carden Alvar with the South Peel Naturalist Club and we saw all the specialties of the area, was very successful trip.
We saw 2 Loggerhead Shrikes, Sedge Wrens,9 types of sparrows including Clay-colored, Grasshopper and Vesper, Scarlet tanager, 6 types of flycatchers including a least flycatcher on a nest.
Also saw American redstarts, Brown thrashers and Baltimore orioles on nest. We had 3 different Golden-winged warblers but 1 was probably a hybrid as it sang a Blue-winged warbler song.
Also Upland Sandpipers, Virginia rail, Sora, Common Moorhen and American Bittern, we ended with 81 species for the day ,not too shabby :)

Enjoy and good birding
